RED One MX Can't Shoot 120?

Recommended Posts

Hey, I've been on and off trying to set this up for nearly a year now.


I've had the camera set at 2k 16:9 (and I think 2:1), Redcode28, and when I go to frame rate the option for 120p doesn't show up.


Has anyone else ran into this problem? How would I fix it?


Thank you.

I had it at those exact setting here, I keep twisting it clockwise and all I'm able to see is 59.94.




Is there another setting I'm missing? Do I need to upgrade something?

It's recording to the RED hard disk drive and not an SSD, if that makes a difference.

did you set the frame rate under the varispeed menu? if not try this.

system-> project -> configure -> time base: set to 23.97


Sensor-> varispeed-> frame rate: set the frame rate to 120

check the varispeed box.

right on yo. btw if you have an external trigger check the ramp box and set it to event then go to the gpio settings and change it from record to ramp then you can start at 24fps at the start of the clip and when you press the trigger it'll go to 120
